looking it up again, I remember what made me especially annoyed on
Leadtek in this case and that we took already a first run on it.

Claiming to have copyrights to defend on Philips/NXP readable .inf files
seems to be totally out of any feasible horizon, especially after what
we have seen going on in Taiwan sometimes.

For the analog side, we don't need them at all and I strongly guess it
is the same for the rest.

Cheers,
Hermann
